# 1 Cooperative missions
04-09-2012, 10:47 AM
I don't know if this has been stated before or if it is already possible. But as far as I know u can't do cooperative missions on sto apart from a few exceptions and PvE/PvP. But it would really great if you could.

You can do Coop on ANY mission in the game, with the exception of some foundry missions because of technical limitations. All you have to is before you start the mission, get in a team with your friends (Right-click their name and then "Send team invite") Once everyone has accepted, you then go to your Missions->In Progress and then select the mission you will like to coop. Then, share it with the team and play as normal. you will all be in the same instance, and get the same reward. if you are in the same part of the story line, you will all get the story line credit.

A few things to note. If you are at different levels, such as a Vice Admiral helping out a Lt, then it is important to match the team leaders level. Whoever the team leader is (that is, the person who started sending the invites) will set the base level for the mission. If you do NOT match the level, you might end up facing lvl 50s before you are ready. Easiest way to do this is to make sure that the lowest lvl player is the team leader. (You can pass the team leadership around by right clicking their portrait and clicking "Promote to leader") Next to the team leader's Icon will be a mashed up icon of two people standing together. Make sure that this is active and that is says "currently matching team leader's level" when you hover over it.

Second thing to take note of is the team missions settings. The team leader's difficulty on their missions tab will determine the difficulty of the mission as a whole. so make sure you all agree on it. Also, you need to set your looting system for the random drops. Click the social icon on your minimap (on the right, three heads), and then go to the team settings tab. Here, you can set the loot mode and the threshold of loot that get thrown into it. Need or Greed is the standard one that everyone uses, although you can change it as needed.

Hope this covers everything. LLAP

Kyeto13 is right. You can do missions with other players.

Thanks a lot for the answer,
I believed I read it somewhere that is not possible. But gladly it is. But some people still keep on saying sto was a "single player" game.

Great that you also explained the team leader match. I wasn't wondering about that one too. I do still have questions though .

1. How many players can participate in the episode missions?
2. Does every player beam down with his entire bridge officer away team (this would explain why the bridges and halls are so ridiculously gigantic)?
3. As far as I can remeber, the game starts with the player as ensign fighting off borgs before you ever make contact with earth space dock. Is that initial part also cooperative?
4. I'm not sure how you want to solve the "choose one option" conversations on e.g. DS9 briefing room in "Second wave". I guess the team leader decides everything?

1 - 5 People on team max.
2 - No, the other players replace the BOFFs.
3 - It is.
4 - It's a voting thing. Everyone has to click the agreeable button.

# 6 Another issue

Hello, I've searched google, this forum and steam forum concerning STO and still haven't found answer to my problem. Me and my girlfriend started playing STO this week and we wanted to play missions in cooperation. However, when I tried to join her mission I got message saying, that I cannot participate in mission, because I can only have one bridge officer of that kind and my inventory is full. My question is: what am I doing wrong? What is the exact procedure for participation in someone else's missions?
